Davis Byrd planning director fir Florence who has been working on the prospects for gaining Federal Aid to finance the re vitalize Tion of the d o w n f o w n business District said Federal Grants totalling approximately million Are being sought to implement the program. According to Byrd. The East Evans Street project if approved for Federal monetary support will be similar to the renewal of West Evans Street s downtown Center bu1, will go much further in that it will involve considerable slum clearance projects. The first phase of the downtown face lifting was completed a few years ago with the development of the promenade and the new Back door face listings of some stores. Even so that project still is being phased for Cimpl Tion and is in addition to the East Evans Street project Byrd has explained. What Byrd has envisioned for the East Evans Street renewal development is the restoration of several blocks covering More than 37 acres of land for several land use schemes. They include slum c Learance residential Imp r o v c m c s business revitalization and the in migration if some types of Small specialized industries compatible with the employ ment needs of the adjacent residential neighbourhoods. Basically the project Calls for a mixture of land uses All designed for the optimum development of the renewal area consistent with City building codes zoning ordinances and the like. But the main Point Byrd stresses is that the project is designed to enhance and dramatically improve t h e value and usefulness of the Eastern heart of downtown Florence to the status it once enjoyed. The area considered for the development is the Section of Florence adjacent to and East of Dargan Street bound cd on the North by front is reel on the South by Cleves sure of and on the Eastern Edge by la Allee Street. For funds to finance the renewal project Byrd has sought financing through the . Department of housing and i1 r b a n development soliciting Aid in filing applications for funds through the housing authority of Florence. Initially an application has been Sii Boillod Iid s regional office in Atlanta. Ga., and is being considered for funding " a wird used in Federal budget circles mean ing the first application submitted by the housing authority of Florence has been submitted by John m. Daniels. It Calls for the housing authority in addition to the Multi million dollars earmarked for Low rent housing developments for Florence to obtain for Survey and planning studies. Frim this study will emerge recommendations for the types of improvements sought along with suggestions As to his the renewal program can Best be utilized within the most reasonable time table schedule and costs within reach of financing abilities. The planning department through the City s housing authority is asking for Hud to ultimately provide for the renewal. That amount should go a Long Way toward implementing even the most ambitious and auspicious Pri Gra can be conjured by City planners even with the auxiliary visions of the professional planners Eric Hill associates of Atlanta ga., a firm hired to undertake a major study for Flirence s future develop ment. But professional and painstakingly Ling Range plan Ning notwithstanding t h e Urban renewal project is destined to failure without support of the Federal Grants. As the project now stands the area encompassed by the planned project is considered with several but very few exceptions As a dilapidated slum and blight area by planning officials. Planners Are Quick tie empt some business enterprises and private Homes trim their appraisals of the slum or dissipated portions of the area under scrutiny. Those sections which in clude both business and residential properties would be regarded As in a state of condition not necessarily requiring any improvements except in some slight instances to bring the structural appearances into focus with the general modernization and Motif of renewal designs and specifications. General speaking according to the planning officials the Urban renewal is a deliberate although expensive Effort to bring new and re freshened brisk Ness to Laad areas in the Down two heart of the City which Are now grossly under used Bas factors is million. Improvements paving sewage and drainage systems also Are considered As major portions of the monetary items in the proposed budget. Under the. Complicated terms if Federal Grants either the housing authority of Florence or the Florence planning commission would become Legal landowners of the acquired lands. They if the acquired lands Are jointly controlled would have the land lordship As previously authorized in state see downtown Page 12a Arctic Ocean Feo Pforr toy Dit Tonry Wollt Alaska he natives of Stevens Aspa or Iii Karl a those in Fairbanks Village have a Good Case.
